Coolgorilla, the world’s most primitive software developers who have been at the forefront of the evolution of mobile translation products, have launched a new talking phrasebook for all iPhone and iPod Touch users.
The phrasebook is available in seven different language versions, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish, and can be downloaded by visiting Apple’s App Store.
Searching through a printed phrasebook is now a thing of the past as Coolgorilla’s intuitive application allows consumers to search quickly and simply for a phrase in English and let their iPhone speak the phrase in the foreign language.
A real, native accent is used and the text translation is also provided on the screen. Each phrasebook contains over 500 sound files covering all elements of the holiday experience including eating, travel and even flirting. The talking phrasebooks also have a new search functionality included. Users can now quickly and easily search for all phrases.
Roy Forsdick, MD of Coolgorilla, stated: “We’ve worked really hard to improve the phrasebooks yet again. Since we started developing the talking phrasebooks in 2005 we’ve spoken to hundreds of travellers to find out what phrases they would like to see included. With over 40 different categories in this version, we’re confident that they will enrich people’s holiday experience.”
